On the Day I Died: Stories from the Grave

On the Day I Died: Stories from the Grave - Candace Fleming Wow!! What a great book for middle graders and teens!! These short stories are weaved together with the overall story of narrator. Such wonderful variety, amazingly all written by the same author.

Each short story is tole in the first person by a different ghost. I loved every story and found myself wishing there were more ghosts to talk. They were all so colorful and inventive. Some stories will harken back to other tales like "The Monkey's Paw" and The Yellow Wallpaper.

I listened to the audiobook, which was a real treat and a smorgasbord of narrators. Each one was a delight to listen to and really added to the effect of stories coming from different characters. All of the accents and pacing was spot on, blending beautifully to create this unique book.

This book would definitely be great for any young readers who are into supernatural tales that are light on gore and heavy on creativity! If you know somebody who loves R.L. Stine or The Outer LimitsTwilight Zone, this is the perfect book to recommend!
